One fitted a day, done my way. My love and passion for baseball and sports as a whole is translated through my collection of fitted caps. Most of these cranial gems I have collected through my vast adventures of Americas frontiers one dirt filled diamond at a time. Others in the collection have been purchased or given to me as gifts. Every Fitted has a team and every team has a story, these are my stories. The Fitted Diaries, One fitted a day, done my way...

Today's fitted is the home cap of the Tigres Del Licey (Licey Tigers). The Tigers play in the Dominican Winter League. The Tigers are arguably the most successful team in the winter league, being that they have captured 22 league championships, and 10 Caribbean World Series titles in their 103 year history. The Tigers play in Estadio Quisqueya, a 16,500 seat stadium which was built in 1955. Some former Tigers include Pedro Martinez, Mike Piazza, Alex Rodriguez, Edgar Renteria, Mark McGwire, Vladimir Guerrero, and Aramis Ramirez. Since they are a Winter League team, they often attract MLB players to come play and stay in playing form in the off season. The cap shown has a blue crown and brim with a cursive capital L shaded white, with a tiger prowling the letter. A rare cap that i found at Cap City in West New York, New Jersey.
